Bond Bryan scoops planning for Sheffield uni atrium

  • Comment

AJ120 practice Bond Bryan has been given the go-ahead for a new glass atrium linking two historic buildings at the University of Sheffield


The 12,500m2 four-storey glass atrium will link the university’s Grade II-listed Mappin Building with the 1855 Central Wing.

The development features an undulating glass roof enclosing the courtyard between the two buildings and forming an ‘engineering heartspace’.

The scheme also includes new laboratories, IT space, offices, a café and social space.

The project is set to start on site in May 2017 and is expected to complete in 2018.
